Our visit was one of the highlights of our holiday, and we happily used the free return ticket. Our 4 year old loved the special trails, particulary Flamingo Bingo, which really kept his interest and earned him a great prize. The beach is just lovely. Special thank you to Tracy, who helped my grandad get used to the tramper mobility... More

The childfriendliest garden I have ever been. Every lawn they can step on or roll down, trees to climp on, trials between bamboos ans hundreds of ways (also between giant leafs!!) to explore.. And at least a beach where we found glass stones and a jellyfish and - of course - an icecream. Also the menu in the maincafe were... More

We are life members of these wonderful gardens. We visit at least once a month and take photos to record the changing seasons. We have also sponsored a seat in the new amphitheatre. Child and dog friendly. Even open Christmas Day. Beach and cafe at the bottom and quality restaurant, shops and garden centre at the top. Lovely staff. I... More

Lovely gardens, but hilly so a challenge for wheelchair users, however Trebah had thought of this and provided assistance wheelchairs which were brilliant. They helped get up the steeper slopes and stopped the chair "running away" going downhill. The gardens were fantastic I was very impressed, there's something for everyone!

We went to lots of gardens in the area but this one was definitely the most interesting and different. We arent big fans of tropical palms and ferns but here they are cleverly combined with stunning flowers to create something different from the norm. Even the way they have created a tunnel through the Gunnera was unique, and as for... More

We used a 'Great gardens of Cornwall' leaflet, which we had stamped at a previous garden, and got £2.50 off entrance to our next garden we visited. Our ticket allowed us to return for the next week, we would have loved to if we had time. It has a lovely shingle beach, some people were swimming, others paddling, lovely beach.... More

we visited with our teenage daughter, having previously visited over twenty years ago. The garden is even better than I remembered. The Gunnera were amazing; it is quite an experience walking under the enormous leaves. Other memorable features of the garden are the ponds, acers and monkey puzzle trees. The beach at the end of the garden is a lovely... More

As 3 adults we did not venture into the children's areas. This garden is an absolute must to visitors in Cornwall. The hydrangeas were the most I have ever seen grouped together and were at their absolute best, such a variety of colours. We enjoyed every inch and took lots of photographs. We had no idea there was a beach... More

Very steep to walk around but make the effort, go to the beach and read about the American troops in WW2. Visit the café ( no entry needed) for great food buy plants

Wow! This garden never disappoints. The staff are all very courteous and helpful and we had a map that allowed us to plan our tour of these gardens exactly the way that we wanted. The Beach walk is breath taking with impressive bamboo, giant rhubarb (that gives the impression of a Jurassic park movie) and then the most spectacular hydrangea.... More
